Knoxville Bar Association
The CLE Program "Full Court Press: Story of a Game Changing Lawsuit" was originally presented and recorded on March 14, 2019.
In his latest book, Bill Haltom has teamed up with a brilliant young writer—Amanda Swanson—to tell the story of a game-changing lawsuit, Victoria Cape v. the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association. Filed and tried in the 1970s, this landmark case under Title IX challenged the archaic rules that once confined female basketball players to a half-court game. The star witness at the trial was a young Pat Summitt who would go on to be the greatest women’s basketball coach in the history of the game. Bill will tell the story of how Pat, a brave young high school player, and their lawyers scored an historic victory for female athletes, not on a basketball court, but in a courtroom!
Speakers: William H. Haltom, Jr., Retired from Lewis Thomason and Amanda Swanson, Law Student at the University of Virginia
